Kate Taylor

Kate Taylor grew up on a farm in west Otago and has been a journalist since she left school, starting with radio and moving into print when she returned from her OE in 1996 to work for the then Hawke’s Bay Herald Tribune. She left what became Hawke’s Bay Today in 2000 when her daughter was born and she has been a freelance journalist, administrator and event manager ever since. Kate, her husband Thomas and their children Sarah and Lachlan live on a small farm at Takapau in Hawke’s Bay, where she is an active member of the local fire brigade.
